Day 811 The Circus

The Circus was in Aiken last Monday. I drove around in back to check out the animals. All they had were the camels and the elephants. I have never drawn camels before. Not sure how well they turned out but I do like the truck.  Too bad I ran out of room for it.  Oops. 

Love drawing elephants. The one on the left moved a lot. And they were whisked off to perform before I got a chance to get out of the car. 😔 

These were drawn with a Noodler Konrad in a strathmore landscape watercolor sketchbook and actually painted with watercolor using Ted Nuttalls transparent colors plus cerulean. 

Ttyl 

Margaret xxx think I will go draw some more trucks!! 🤗

Day 802 A Pound a Day!

Since I got home from the wedding. BUT Let’s not discuss what I ate are the wedding. I did have a date with a large bowl of homemade kettle chips!! 😁

Needless to say I have eaten ALOT Of chic Fil a Market Salads and even a southwestern one but always with a wave of avocado dressing on it. Maybe a tablespoon or so. And lots of Baby Bella cheese. Handy and highly portable. 
The background was colored with an indigo winsor Newton marker first pass. I thought it was a fairly boring color so I went back over it with the turquoise marker. Like it better now. You can also see the turquoise in the blue bowl on the left. 

Colors used
. WN WC markers- indigo turquoise cad red sap green and Thalo green. A buff colored tombow.

Day 798 It’s done. 

The party’s over. Time to get back on the diet. I wasn’t  terrible at the wedding other than the cake and champagne I mean prosescco. But those kettle chips at the rehearsal party where calling my name. I walked four miles no problem everyday just helping with the wedding and the grandkids. 

Ps tombow and winsor Newton watercolor markers. 



The party went on into the wee hours. I am off home shortly to pick up the dogs and then sleep for a week or two. 

Ttyl Margaret in hot Alanna. Xxx
